Better find a new SE! While you may not be able to order one, I can. Unfortunately, the part #s, prices and lead times are not available for ANY of the "announced" modules. Our technical staff just roll their eyes and mutter about IOS issues. Past history has shown that even when the products are orderable, the IOS will either not be ready and when it is will have more bugs than Minnesota in June.
The Achilles Heel for Cisco is, and has been for a long time, IOS. We spend an inordinate amount of time trying to sort out issues, and each new module or feature that is introduced just makes the situation worse.
I go back to my original thought that this is a marketing announcement designed to create FUD. These products are a long way from shipping and an even longer way from being stable.
There are other options out there, and this is a ploy to slow down sales of competing products. Nothing more.
